  1. Facets of Curriculum ModellingMike Collett EDRENE Conference Den Haag December 2012

  2. What? • curriculum • a race course (Latin - cursus) showing how children grow into adults • a course: topics, levels, standards and objectives • often • a structured document • defines requirements • linked to qualifications and assessments

  3. Why? • Why model a curriculum? <put your own requirements here>

  4. Why? • use parts in metadata for • resources and assessments • people • navigation • hierarchies • drop down list filters • modularise to share and reuse parts • map between curricula • additional information in user interface

  5. England National Curriculum • been through several cycles • Online set of vocabularies

  6. England National Curriculum • Not a single structure • A single set of “tagging terms” • Programmes of study (objectives) • Schemes of work • Other vocabularies provided: • structure • facets (at the time using related terms) • tagging rules, for example subject - key stage

  7. England National Curriculum • Major revision with replacement 2008 Programmes of study and Schemes of work • only a few tagging terms added or removed • the main change was in objectives and work schemes • new schemes were mapped to tagging terms • hence most legacy metadata still valid

  8. STEM Portal • http://www.nationalstemcentre.org.uk/ • Bespoke CMS with SOLR for search • Tagged with small selection of vocabularies • Subject • Key stage | Age range • Resource type • Content format • Publication date (year) • Publisher • Tags used for faceting

  9. National Strategies • Professional development for UK professionals • Over 20,000 documents • Re-developed in 2008 • dynamic content discovery and navigation by use of metadata • navigation structure defined by a taxonomy, each navigation point (or node) of which contained a query • Re-used many of the National Curriculum vocabs • Archived site

  10. National Strategies - Vocabularies • Stages of education – Phase (Early Years, Primary and Secondary), Key Stage, School Year • Curriculum subject and subject specifiers • Role or Audience • Educational topic – a dumping ground • Navigation hierarchies for box navigation

  11. Box Navigation

  12. Faceted navigation

  13. Work cycle

  14. Where are the facets? • metadata properties • as categories attached to curriculum items • automatic queries at nodes • simplify tagging • separate the management of vocabularies • multiple consuming services • quicker development • change management • thanks
